“Although we have another cool project in the works at the moment and we need to see how good Swords & Soldiers is going to do, I am sure we will make a sequel of the game, we already have pages and pages filled with ideas for that game.” – Fabian Akker (Co-Founder) of Ronimo Games

I’ve been impressed with what I have seen from Swords & Soldiers thus far. If the game plays as good as it looks, I’d be more than happy to see a sequel on WiiWare.

Thanks to James for the news tip.

Email subject: 2007 brought…

Looks like this is an announcement of sorts for Pokemon Platinum. This is a bit of a letdown, but Nintendo has not been known for announcing new titles through emails.

A few days ago, rumors surfaced that Nintendo is in the process of developing a double USB hard drive. As was reported, the product would latch onto the back of the Wii so that it would look like a natural part of the system. Nintendo has, however, essentially shot down all gossip about the possible device. The company said today that the double USB hard drive talk is purely “rumour and speculation.”

“That’s right. But they’re not confirmed. I can’t really talk about them.” – Traveller’s Tales animator Charlotte Parker

“Am currently working as a Cutscene Animator on LEGO Harry Potter & LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull which are both in the early stages of production.” -Charlotte Parker’s CV

The information on Charlotte Parker’s CV has since been removed. I’d still consider this a rumor for now, but it does seem as though both LEGO Harry Potter and Lego Indiana Jones 2 are in development.
